Pros: Very workable files, great ergonomics, adjustable screen, tropicalization, high ISO resistance

Cons: Lacks the WiFi, no flash, AF now no longer topical (but CMQ excellent)

Opinion: My first experience with full frame, after many years with a700 and a year with a 77.2 (which is newer than A99), after some initial hesitation I can say I did well to make this leap. In the transition from a 77.2 to A99 I had to pay several Scotti: Greater machine weight and lenses, higher costs than the latter, AF less evolved, no wifi. But as far as my photographic needs are concerned the pros beat the Cons: The full frame sensor acquires more workable files, especially in the recovery of shadows, cleaner at high ISO and more balanced in colors. For those who like me do so much portraiture both outdoors and indoors, natural or artificial light, optimal lighting or dim, is the manna from heaven. Not very intuitive the menu, but the physical commands are always excellently arranged and with a few clicks you set everything according to your needs. Very comfortable the ring nut for the selection between auto Fire and manual. Priceless the hybrid focus, as well as the preview of how the shot will be. The 24 mpx are more than enough, more crowding would give only annoyance, also allows the use with all the old Minolta lenses even those non-G series or digital (between here the grandiose series Beercan) that would be difficult with the 36 mpx and beyond So many other full frames. Find his ideal partner in the Zeiss 24 70 2.8, but I recommend to try also with little expense the Minolta 28 135, 35 70 and 28 2.8, over 50ini: You'll love. I have also paired the old but still fantastic Sigma 50 and 85 ex HSM, and I'm very happy with it. Also I found considerable benefit with the use of the battery grip, allows you to have mounted three batteries together and improves the already excellent ergonomics (especially if you like me do many vertical shots).

Pros: Performance, High Quality, Very Malleable Files ... etc

Cons: Distribution of AF points.

Opinion: Taken used, I'm really okay. Few uncertainties in the AF and passing from 28 to 75 sam at the Zeiss 24-70 disappeared altogether. Strong handling, convenient the swivel screen such as the A77 I and II, allowing you to make shots from the top and the side without making mortal jumps (I've often used it for architectural photos by putting the screen over and turned sideways so that the machine is resting on the wall of the room and use all the available meters to shoot as wide a frame as possible). Commands are well-distributed and easy to reach. To me great.

Pros: Anyway, I would particularly mention the electronic viewfinder (The only Pro reflex to have it) that is not small, see the photo before and not after. Wide choice between Minolta and Sony. Zeiss optics.

Cons: No one in particular. Battery life. Adding ... Fixed with the BatteryGrip.

Opinion: Used socket (as well as the "old" A77), change the optics from APS to FF. Time two exits to get feeling (but not much, is identical to A77). Updated firmware (but never does anyone?). Care must be taken to adjust the micro-regulation of the targets. And then ... I have to say that it's precise in everything, especially in focus. There's a good ergonomics, the few things you can do can be programmed on the keys that are under your fingers. The only defect, if defect might be, is the battery life, but I always go with spare parts in the bag (like all serious photographers). Add: bought battery pack, solved the problem of battery life. FANTASTIC button that allows you to adjust the focus range on any lens, you get a MAF (if properly adjusted) immediate.

Pros: Ergonomics, functionality and overall performance.

Cons: None in particular

Opinion: I bought this car a few months ago with his original vg and the Zeiss 24-70 f 2.8, prevenivo from a77 with the 16-50 f 2.8 and the a850 with the 28-75 f 2.8.rnIl leap forward was clear, the two systems are quite similar, but the a99 is superior in everything, some things much in other poco.rnSicuramente of the qi is greater, while having the same resolution exploits all the lens surfaces ff managing to have a better sharpness, Also the file is more 'malleable and needless to say the files at high ISO are finally usable. We do not speak of values ??"absolute" in difficult lighting conditions in my opinion the files are good up to 3200 ISO, usable in 6400, to avoid the higher sensitivity, however, a big step forward compared to a77 that already in 1600 iso gave results osceni.rnL'autofocus is slightly more 'fast, is more' accurate and can 'count on useful function af range.rnL'ergonomia, the build quality and reliability are very good, a real machine professionale.rnIl viewfinder good oled can also be used in situations where maybe with the optician you could not see anything, the rear monitor tiltable is usually pleasing plus that sony puts all its machines, convenient stabilizer and finally we also have the sled "standard" flashes instead of wobbly slide minolta.rnUna machine recommended unreservedly to those who own a sony kit to mount ff, probably there are machines with more 'resolution or better performance at high ISO, but if you need a car to work seriously sony a99 never betrays.

Pros: Good image quality in both jpeg to raw electronic viewfinder, high quality with many more qualities that defects, very good even at high ISO, very good ergonomics, light weight easy to use especially if you have already owned a Sony in MF mode accentuates with edges colored the outlines of things in focus in the electronic viewfinder so you can also check the PDC

Cons: Sometimes it is a little slow in resuming after you have turned the LCD points of focus too much power.

Opinion: You will immediately notice the hold it the build quality definitely built to last, great ergonomics all the main controls at your fingertips without having to remove your eye from the viewfinder. Working in manual for macros you have the magnification within the electronic viewfinder for focusing very accurate. The dynamic range is very good with a good degree of customization. Great gust 6 frames per second and the image stabilizer built-in make it a very versatile machine that can be used safely by stil life to the photo hunt. 24 MP sensor for excellent quality and excellent video quality.
